Dear Carolina and FIS colleagues, Many thanks for your questions. They have motivated quite interesting responses--I agree with the very cogent comments raised. Only a few further matters to consider about neuroinformation. First, TOPOLOGY. I think all the mappings, gradients, inversions,

I suggest that you take a look at Floridis book 'Philosophy of Information' where he distinguishes three senses of the word 'information' and one of which seems to fit what you are asking about , viz., 'Neuroinformation'. regards Lars-Göran Johansson 3 dec 2014 kl. 13:46 skrev Carolina Isiegas

Very interesting. It might also be useful to connect information to computation as information dynamics. Information self-structuring and morphological computing are of interest. See for example: http://www.indiana.edu/~cortex/ICDL05_paper.pdf Information Self-Structuring: Key Principle for

Dear Dr. Isiegas: I envision neuroinformation as the mutual information of the neuronal network where synaptic connections are weighted by the frequencies of discharge between all pairs of neurons. This is directly analogous to a network of trophic exchanges among an ecosystem, as illustrated in

Dear Dr. Isiegas, let me offer some proposals as to the underlying concepts that differentiate treatment of information in the technical and in the biologic understanding. The neuronal process is both sequential and commutative: commutative in the sense that chemical reactions take place
